The Sweeper

If a man
Does the work
Of the wind
Is the wind
Made redundant

If a man is employed
To do the work of the wind
To sweep away the brittle leaves
But leave behind the plastic;

If he spends all day
Upon the pavement
Sweeping heaps of leaves away

May well he wonder
May well he worry
Did he sweep the corner?

While the wind
Breathes in a deep breath
And sweeps the sweeper away

I am interested in multimedia work: songwriting, art, and creative writing. I have been involved also in theatre and music performances.
